Content & Mail Filters

Datasync Intenet Services Safe Surf -- We at Datasync Internet Services  are proud to offer a premier Internet filtering service to our subscribers.

Datasync Internet Services Mail Filter -- Unsolicited commercial e-mail, commonly known as UCE or "spam" , is a fast growing problem on the Internet. Most ISPs, such as Datasync Internet Services, prohibit their subscribers from sending mass unsolicited e-mail. But, there are an increasing number of sites on the Internet which are set up for the express purpose of cranking out junk mail, however. This is why we are offering you the option of filtering out junk mail by address or entire domain so that you never have to see it.
